POW! WOW! TAIWAN! Recap.

Having spent four festivals covering Hawaii with fantastic street art and murals POW! WOW! returned to Asia (the first POW! WOW! was held in Hong Kong) for their inaugural Taiwan festival.  Artists from around the globe joined local Taiwanese artists to create murals around Taipei including popular locations like the Taipei Zoo, Tugnan University, Songshan Cultural Park, Ximen and many others.

Through bouts of relentless rain and the humid, exasperating heat artists such as James Jean, Aaron De La Cruz, Madsteez, Apex, INSA, Rone, Sheryo, Yok, Woes, Skewville and Brendan Monroe fought the elements alongside local art legends Reach, Mr. Ogay, Colasa Seazk, Saym Dabs, Bobo and more to put up all kinds of gorgeous, stunning murals.

During all this there were lectures by BOOOOOOOM!, Hypebeast and 1xRun plus parties with DJ Neil Armstrong and concerts (and lots of delicious looking food, too).

Check out a TON of awesome photos below taken by Brandon Shigeta and Vincent Ricafort:

I want to know if there was a point where she realized “oh shit, I screwed up.” Or if she powered through it convinced that this was the most amazing Jesus ever painted.

Mako Iwamatsu

10 December, 1933 - 21 July, 2006

[For added creys, click here

Born in Japan, Mako Iwamatsu moved to the United States following the Second World War. He joined the military during the 1950s and it was around that time that he discovered his love for the theatre. 

Mako had a long and successful career in the entertainment industry. He was featured in several episodes of M*A*S*H, he played the role of Akiro The Wizard in Conan the Barbarian, and he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Po-Han in The Sand Pebbles.

The average age of Tumblrs being what it is, I think most would be surprised to learn of Mako’s presence throughout their childhood. Mako did voice work as “The Narrator” in several episodes of Dexter’s Laboratory, as Aku in Samurai Jack, as Uncle Iroh in Avatar: The Last Airbender, and as Master Splinter in the 2007 animated film TMNT (the film was released after his death). 

Mako made several one-time appearances in many television programs throughout his career. No matter how small the part, however, he always found a way to breathe life, character, and heart into every performance. 

Because Mako passed away in 2006 (shortly after recording season two of A:TLA), he was unable to finish his work as the lovable Uncle Iroh. However, the show’s creators honoured Mako’s contributions by naming a character in Legend of Korra after him.
